3Xtreme Cheats & Cheat Codes for PlayStation

Originally releasing April 20, 1999, 3Xtreme is the third and final game in Sony’s Extreme Games series. Following the initial entry ESPN Extreme Games (a first-party Sony Computer Entertainment title for the PS1), the series would continue and expand with 2Xtreme. 2Xtreme is noteworthy for introducing combat elements into the extreme sports racing gameplay, calling to mind classics like Road Rash and Skitchin‘. 3Xtreme retains the new fighting additions from 2Xtreme but is also significantly faster. As a result, many players consider 3Xtreme to be a middle ground that combines aspects of the first and third entries in the series.

The title was famously released just a few short months before the launch of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. Of course, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater would go on to transform extreme sports games, rendering many past entries in the sports subgenre moot. Between 3Xtreme’s somewhat antiquated gameplay and its low review scores, the franchise’s future would be all but over after the launch of Tony Hawk despite Sony’s considerable efforts to promote the game.

That said, 3Xtreme is the first and only game in the series to feature full-3D polygonal visuals. While previous games in the series would utilize a mix of polygonal levels and sprite-based assets, 3Xtreme uses polygonal models for all aspects of gameplay.

3Xtreme Premise

3Xtreme gameplay

Like the previous two games in the series, #Xtreme is a sports/racing hybrid. Players choose one of three different modes of transportation, with multiple characters available for each. Stages include Rollerblading, Skateboarding, and Cycling races. The goal is to be the first person crossing the finish line in a downhill race. Along the way, players can navigate through pylons to earn bonus points. Notably, since 2Xtreme, players can sabotage opponents by punching or kicking them during races. The addition of melee combat to the downhill races adds new ways to strategize victory.

In addition to choosing from one of three sports and their respective racers/characters, each character has various equipment available for purchase. Buying new equipment and upgrading prior to races improves performance. Additionally, some characters have higher stat distributions than others. Those characters with higher stat attributes perform better during the races. While the main gameplay component is the races, 3Xtreme does include several different modes. Freestyle Mode is a non-racing option where players complete tricks for points. Exhibition Mode allows players to experience any race at any time without competition. The main gameplay mode is Season, in which players compete to unlock new gear and tracks.

3Xtreme Main Characters

3Xtreme gameplay

Similar to the later Tony Hawk games, players can choose from a wide number of athletes for 3Xtreme‘s races. However, unlike the Tony Hawk series, the athletes in 3Xtreme are all fictional and not real-world professional skateboarders. Further, players can unlock strange and unusual characters such as Alien and Monster racers. These atypical characters come with strong stat bonuses in comparison to their human counterparts. The roster of racers in 3Xtreme includes:

  • Joe Carberry
  • Michelle Carson
  • Frank Corsetti
  • Zach Cruz
  • Paul Dillon
  • Kendra Jackson
  • Karac Jones
  • Sam Marubayashi
  • Cale Nappi

  • Spunkmeyer
  • TP (Monster)
  • Dominique (Monster)
  • Bink (Alien)
  • Nyub (Alien)
  • Geep (Alien)

Games in the Xtreme Series

Sony’s Extreme Games series would originate as an early PS1 franchise and last until near the end of the console’s lifespan. In that time, Extreme Games would spawn two sequels, 2Xtreme and 3Xtreme. Diminishing returns on franchise sequels inevitably resulted in the series’ demise, especially following the groundbreaking reception and success of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. Games in the Extreme Games franchise include:

  • ESPN Extreme Games (1995)
  • 2Xtreme (1996)
  • 3Xtreme (1999)
